I think the digital is a little less sensitive that the pink die strip tests. Maybe wait a day or two and test again with a digital? If the line showed up in the time window and had color you probably just need to wait for hcg to get high enough that the digital can detect it.

That’s definitely positive on the cheapie! As pp said, digitals are not as sensitive. I would test again tomorrow or the next day on a digital after your HCG has had a chance to increase some more, and you should be able to get a positive. Congrats!!

Digital won’t be as sensitive… Be patient, bee, because that is definitely positive!! Congrats! If you want to see another positive, I would try a First Response… If it is showing up on a cheapie, it will definitely show up on a First Response.

have you tried a pink dye FRER? Those are very accurate and show up darker than the cheapies

Congrats! I second PPs. A FRER will give you a nice pink line. Digitals take a little longer to work and judging by that cheapie you’re very early (as you said, period was expected tomorrow). Try not to worry, I know, easier said than done with a history of some MCs. Be sure to update if you take a FRER! 🙂

moto5522 :  Well shoot! I still see something on the cheapie. I guess keep POAS each morning on a cheapie and see if you still get a line, if so try a FRER every other day. I would even try another cheapie today if you still have the pee you used on the FRER or do another 3-4 hr hold and POAcheapieS again.

moto5522 :  how long did you hold it for before POAS? Also if you’ve had a lot to drink this afternoon it could be super diluted. Try first morning pee tomorrow.

moto5522 :  I can see a line on the FRER. It’s what my first test looked like with my son. Serious squinter but I definitely think I can see it. 

Hold as song as you can and try another cheapie and FRER in the same urine.
